The Wingman is almost in a class of its own in Apex Legends, not because it's heaps better than the other guns in the game, but because no other gun is quite like it. Granted, other weapons like Assault Rifles and SMGs can be more powerful, but the Wingman is deadly in the right situation.
This pistol is one that had a popular start in the game, but its popularity dwindled over time. However, the Wingman has seen a revival in recent seasons (especially in Arenas) and it's not too hard to see why. It's one of the most aggressive pistols in the game and it behaves a lot like a revolver.
In this guide, we are going to show you the damage stats, attachments, and skins for the Wingman.

Wingman Review - Is It Good?
The Wingman has the best range of any of the three pistols available in-game. It also holds a decent amount of ammo given the damage it does. On the other hand, it has a very slow firing rate and a particularly high recoil, which means you have to be incredibly skilled with the gun in order to utilise it to its full capabilities. It's not a great gun if you're a novice, but if you use it right, it is highly effective.
The Wingman is just one of the many weapons you can find in Apex Legends. Pistols can be tricky weapons if you're not used to them as they demand that your aim is accurate. However, if you are confident in your aiming abilities, then take a look at the Triple Take Marksman Rifle. This weapon is dangerous without any attachments, and lethal with them. Also, if you like the Triple Take, you should take a look at the Sentinel Sniper Rifle. It's another weapon that excels at ranged combat.
